Savant Labs
A World of Lubrication Understanding®

Wear, Performance, and Simulation Testing

Savant Labs offer an array of wear and application simulation testing. Tribology is the science and engineering of interacting surfaces in relative motion and  includes the principles of friction, lubrication, and wear.  There are many ASTM methods to determine wear with fluid lubricants and greases under the prescribed test conditions.  There are also methods widely used for the determination of extreme pressure properties, load-carrying capacity of lubricating fluids, determination of coefficient of friction, in addition to performance and simulation and more.  

Our expert technicians have also written an article related to Wear Preventive Characteristics and highlights extreme pressure four-ball, four-ball wear, and SRV

If you would like to discuss testing options or learn more about the testing capabilities available at Savant labs, please contact us.
